Hmm, no, that probably wouldn't do what you want. In "security =
domain", it definitely has to be pointing to a PDC/BDC of the domain it's a
member of (in general it should be anyway)
I have no idea if this will make a difference, but ideally rather
than just the one BDC, you should probably specify the PDC and then all of
the BDCs for the domain on the one "password server = " line, separated by
whitespace. (i.e. "password server = SMYDOM00 SMYDOM01 SMYDOM02") At least
that's how we have it here, and domain trust relationships seem to work.
